You write it as it was extremely difficult... but in reality on the server I
manage it happened a dozen times in the last month (4 times to me alone).
This is getting pretty annoying. I get disabled on 20-30 lists, spread on
different virtual domains, so even the "globally" option in the re-enabling
form doesn't help much (cause globally = virtual-domain-wide).
I don't have any solution but please don't dismiss this problem.

This looks promising. Is there any howto explaining how to migrate to VERP on
a running list and what gotchas to pay attention?
